Crowd Funding Ideas & Investor

We're based in the UK and are looking to crowd fund for our store, its taken over 1k of orders so far but it's just the tip and very small in the grand scheme.

How is best to crowd fund for these sorts of thing ?

Also we're potentially looking for a small time UK investor to help us out with stock levels and cheaper wholesale providers.

Hi Matt!

 Congratulations, first off, on doing what you're doing. What is your "store"? Are you selling original products? If so, Kickstarter is the best place to go for crowdfunding hands-down. 

   If not, and you're just drop-shipping, it might be a little bit more difficult and perhaps not even totally appropriate for crowd-funding (people tend not to like to invest in drop-shipping companies for a lot of reasons). 

  These 1K orders... what time period is that over? And what has your burn rate been?
